I’m having the same problem. Embedded metadata is fine, flags shows properly. But Infuse dumps most TV shows into “Other” and rest into Movies with incomplete or replaced metadata, even though I’ve turned off metadata fetching in Settings and on each folder. It seems as though Infuse is not respecting the setting to use embedded metadata only, nor is it properly parsing the embedded metadata when it does.
I have to laugh a bit too, I thought this sounded familiar, brain is running on 1/4 speed right now. If you’re talking about TV shows not showing embedded this post may shed some light on why you’re seeing what you are with everything in “Other”
I can appreciate that. Did you by any chance try letting Infuse handle the whole library? You may not have a lot of work to do when it’s done. It’s been pretty solid with metadata and when fixes are needed their usually pretty easy.
If you’re up to it, I’d at least clear the current metadata and then turn off embedded and local then turn on fetching from TMDB and let Infuse fetch everything and get it sorted. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Yeah, I actually tried that the first time and it was pretty ugly. My fault, really, because the filenames are not Infuse-friendly. And having done all of the embedded metadata already, I just don’t feel like renaming hundreds of files in order to have Infuse fetch the proper metadata. Maybe if I have some free time at some point, I’ll do it because I’m sure the fetching is marvelous under those circumstances!
